Each time you reboot, the widget returns to the center of the screen. It doesn't stay put, I like mine in upper right hand corner of the screen. Is there something I can do to keep it there??

The widget does not control where it is placed on the screen when it is loaded, DesktopX does that. Stardock can tell you where this information is stored on your PC. I don't know why DX would not be remembering where you placed the widget.

I loved this Widget. But now suddently even though it is running and in my system tray, I cannot see it anywhere on the screen. I even right click and alternate between show and hide. No effect. Any ideas what I did to make it disappear?

Mabey DesktopX moved it off your screen for you... I'd close the widget, then delete the positioning information DX stores for it. When the widget starts, DX (not the widget) decides where to place it on the screen. Delete the stored position information, and it will be placed in a convenient location when it next starts. Contact stardock support to find out where they store this stuff. I've seen this happen to other widgets I've used too... You can also delete the LookingGlass.CFG file in your DesktopX directory, which is where LG's preferences are stored. The display position is not controlled there, however.

FYI - All the editions of LookingGlass have been updated to the latest version.

I am having the same problem as "rgrounds". I don't know whether he got the situation fixed or not but I can't seem to find the positioning that you are talking about. I deleted the .cfg file but that didn't help. Do you have a solution to this?

I tried that too, & deleted all registry items with no luck. I don't think that "Sir Will Rose" Has looked in here recently

This is the best weather widget I could find! Thanks.......
Allthough I changed the temperature to Celcius (I am in Europe) the weather comments on the icons is still in Fahrenheit. Only the comments/forecast, the temp under the daily icons is Celsius again. Is there a way to change the Fahrenheit in the daily forecasts in Celsius?

Furthermore I would love the implementation of satellite images for Europe......

I've got no complaints about this puppy. Looks great centered within Tiggz' Cabal wallpaper/windoblinds and widgets all around. Good stuff. Very comprehensive widget. Like the option of radar. Love the animations and moon phases. I'll park this one on my desktop for awhile. Thanks.
Comment #11 Tuesday, March 01, 2005 1:00 PM
is there any way to resize the temperature text when the widget is run in minimal mode ? ... it'd be nice to be able to change the color of the text or reposition it in minimal mode, with just the weather symbol showing .. as the temp text kinda overpowers it somwtimes ....
Comment #12 Friday, April 08, 2005 7:58 AM
I love his widget! Good work...

I was wondering though, if there is a way to get the temp, ect to update more often? It seems to update every hour or so.

I am just trying DestopX, but have loved it so far. I think I know the answer, but when I buy DesktopX, can I turn the LookingGlass Weather Suite-HQ Object into a widget?

Comment #13 Thursday, April 14, 2005 10:13 AM
Thanks for the info. I did see the line while checking out the script about 20 minutes. It would be nice to have it update sooner, but if the weather service does not update that soon then there is no reason to make it any sooner. I made some modifications to the LookingGlass Weather Suite - Lite Edition object(hope you don't mind) just for me. It appears to be working fine so far. I changed the default zip code and radar map locations to my home. I also made it so when I clicked on the sun/moon/clouds that it closed the 5 day forecast instead of showing the weather radar. I then put a radar button in the lower left corner of the forecast (where the close button was) to open the radar. This is not to say I didn't like the way you programmed it. It is great. I was just seeing what I could do with this program and I like the results. I saved it as an object and when I register looks like I can save it as a widget or gadget depending on what ver

I really like this widget and all of the other ones in its series, but it seems like I keep having problems with them. I first downloaded it in the object form and had some kind of problem that I cannot remember. I downloaded this one and it worked for a while, but now it is messed up. Whenever I load it, the moon or sun is up higher than where it should be, and when I put it into compact mode, part of the box from the detailed mode is showing. I don't know what is wrong because I re-downloaded it and it still would not work. Please help!
Comment #15 Friday, April 22, 2005 7:42 PM
Everything has been working fine with this Widget, but I see what you are talking about. Tonight the moon looks like it shifted up and to the left about an inch. Does anyone have an answer for this one?
Comment #16 Friday, April 22, 2005 8:48 PM
I did some looking around and deleted the "LookingGlass Weather Suite - UltraLite Edition Widget.exe" folder in:
C:\Documents and Settings\YOURNAME\Local Settings\Application Data\Stardock\DesktopX\WidgetCache
When I loaded the Widget again everything was back to normal. Not sure why it changed. Maybe the cache was corrupt. If that does not help then delete the "lookingglass.cfg" in:
C:\Documents and Settings\YOURNAME\Local Settings\Application Data\Stardock\DesktopX and setup it up again.

Thanks a bunch Starman! That did the trick. I tried looking, too, but obviously not in the right place.

All is right with the widget once again.

Comment #18 Monday, May 02, 2005 8:57 PM
Yep, that did the trick. Now let's hope that it does not have the same problem again.
Comment #19 Friday, January 06, 2006 1:05 PM
ok, this will never work, but I'm goign to ask for help here. I love this widget! But I've been moved behind a proxy server and now I cannot get the updates on the weather, the radar works, but I can't seem to get the Zip code to change, I've tried delete and reinstall and everything. any suggestions. I even tried to edit the script to have my zip as default, no work there either
Comment #20 Sunday, August 30, 2009 3:03 PM
I have some problems with zip codes. I write Moscow, Russia or RSXX0063 but there are no chandes in weather and location. All widgets about weather don't understend zip codes, and renew weather only by words MOSCOW, RUSSIA. But this widget automaticaly changes city's name to zip code. What can i do to solve this problem?
